You know the Natick Sons and Daughters of Italy. They’re the people who have brought you a nice meal at an affordable price every Wednesday since the 1970s at the Washington Ave club, with breaks in service for only two reasons—COVID, and kitchen woes. They figured out work-arounds to the former. But it took a golf tournament, among other fundraising efforts, to upgrade the equipment that makes Pasta Night happen.
If we must golf, we must golf
To that end, over 70 golfers teed off at Sassamon Trace golf course last week to help the Sons and Daughters of Italy fund the final part of the kitchen project—the installation of fire prevention equipment. Once this last punch-list item is complete, and the kitchen passes inspection, the Club will resume Pasta Night, perhaps as early as this fall. “Pasta Night is what keeps us going and we definitely need to reopen…we are 96 years old, and hope to reach 100!” Club president Cathy Washburn said.
The competition was friendly, but it was still a competition, so let’s hear it for the winners (photos by Beth Bomarsi):
